Competency/Learning Objective - Legal knowledge and skills
Neighbours (both residential and commercial) can often fall out over works which one of them is carrying out to jointly owned structures, or which appear to threaten the structural integrity of the other’s building. The Party Wall etc Act 1996 provides a statutory framework for resolving disputes of this kind.
After completing this course, you will be able to advise authoritatively on:
when the 1996 Act is engaged
what the building owner needs to do
the adjoining owner’s rights (with reference to Heathcote and another v Doal and another (2017))
the adjoining owner’s remedies in the event of non-compliance
